When Haute Horlogerie comes to Briston
Briston celebrates its 10th anniversary! To mark this unique occasion, the Brand has decided to launch the Streamliner Urban automatic chronograph for the first time. Edited & exclusively numbered to 50 pieces for each dial, the new Streamliner Urban 10th anniversary is a pure condense of Briston know-how.
Featuring a 43mm case with an uncommon design in the Streamliner tradition, this new model is equipped with the Swiss SW500a caliber. This ultra-reliable movement not only tells the time, but also features a chronograph function, day, date and small seconds at nine o’clock. This prestigious caliber runs at 28,800 vibrations/hour (4Hz.) with a power reserve of approximately two and a half days.
The distinctive features of the Streamliner Urban10th Anniversary are to be found in each of these details, making it a unique model and, for the first time, Swiss Made. The two dials that make up this exclusive series are not only highly legible thanks to their graphic design, but also sporty, with an inner ring featuring a tachymeter scale. Square-shaped with rounded corners, the three distinctively colored counters have been carefully chamfered to arrive at a central sunray section. Each of these dials is embossed with the “waffle” motif that is the hallmark of the Streamliner Urban line.
Purity of line and craftsmanship define this new Streamliner. Featuring a sapphire crystal, the bezel’s tonneau-camber shape keeps its four screws visible, while the case body is designed in tortoiseshell acetate with polished-satin finishes on the rest of the case. The new case is distinguished by its transparent case back, which reveals the automatic movement featuring a rotor specially engraved with the Briston blazon and the mention “10TH ANNIVERSARY”.
The Arabic numerals and indexes are carved into the dial, adding depth to this watchmaking novelty. An important detail is the 10th Anniversary inscription under the date. The ultimate distinction, the “Swiss Made” inscription is delivated written on the inner ring at 6 o’clock and the date window with its square outline give this model understated elegance.
Even the baton-shaped hands, with their Superluminova® inserts, bear witness to refinement. Delicate attention has been paid to the steel seconds hand, which stands out from the white chronograph hands. Equipped with the brand’s blazon on bottom, the central hand, lacquered in black or white, is featuring a red tip on top that adds a sporty touch firmly anchored into Briston’s DNA.
To complete this new Streamliner Urban10th Anniversary, BRISTON has specially developed a black or brown alligator-style calfskin strap with a safety stitching in the colors of the French flag.
